“I think everybody longs to be loved, and longs to know that he or she is lovable. And, consequently, the greatest thing that we can do is to help somebody know that they’re loved and capable of loving.”Mister Fred Rogers
Whether you and your child have a biological relationship, or one formed through kinship, remarriage, or from fostering or adopting, the role of parenting is not easy…but there are specific skills that can make your role easier and create a lasting relationship. Effective parenting is not accidental, it is through consciously providing and modeling unconditional love and acceptance while offering playfulness, genuine curiosity and unwavering support that promotes safety and connection so that we raise children to be competent, confident, and capable adults.
The foundation of effective parenting lies in the relationship you have with your kids. Parenting is a relational based process of nurturing, developing, and supporting the physical, emotional, social, cognitive and moral development of a child. You will be challenged to use different skills in various phases of their life to prepare them for adulthood.
